Regional Manager's Thoughts

This is predominantly a wet-led pub with strong community ties, especially with the local sports teams such as skittles. There is potential to develop a good food offer and further build on the pub’s reputation within the community. This pub could suit a new starter as well as an experienced publican, who can deliver a good and consistent food offer to attract more custom.
